Flagship 61, Solution 61, Hovercraft 56 and Mountain twin 59
Boards you used this year and for what conditions.:
Flagship 61 for all the conditions all terrain. Simply the best tool for the ever changing freeride terrain
Solution 61 where the chairs didn’t take me. Splitboard worked lot better than I ever though and gave me totally new perspective to mountain access without sacrificing riding performance
Hovercraft 56 in deep pow and ultimate tool for tree sherdding. Surprise of the year. I wanted to ride Hovercraft everywhere from pow to park.
Mountain twin 59 for more freestyle action

Hovercraft gave me a whole new perspective for snowboarding in the trees and pillow lines. Such a fun board!
Solution literally took me higher and places than any other board before.

When did your start splitboarding? Do splitboards work? Has splitboarding changed snowboarding for you?
I tried spiltboarding first time little over a year ago. I was amazed how well it worked and how much easier it was to get further faster. Snowshoes have stayed in the closet after that day. And it was great to notice that I can fully trust the board in riding different terrain too. Splitboarding gave me a new perspective to snowboarding that always crawed, ride good terrain without crowds. It also gives me access to mountains that I previously had to use motors to get up. I have never been a big fan of sleds anyway.
